Just to be clear, are you in need of 6 belted seats for travel, or only 6 sleeping berths?

Many “6 berth” motorhomes from that era had the beds, but not the seats (or payload) to carry 6 people. Couple that with your requirement for a rear lounge, and the possibilities reduce even further.

Aside from the Fiat/Peugeot requirement, have you any particular models/manufacturers in mind?

We started motorhoming in 2008, and needed at least 5 berths and belts at that time. We found that our choices were limited by the number of seatbelts and payload.


Regards,
John

IF you get 6 belted seat please check the available payload, 6 people plus all the “stuff” that goes with them weighs a lot!
I recall looking at a 6 berth Rapido some years ago, the payload was just under 300kg that’s just 50kg per person! When I quizzed the salesman he told me they expected 4 occupants to travel by car not IN the MH

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

Did he know you were/had been a traffic cop when he answered?

No way!! I wanted to see what sort of answer he gave. I was stunned by the banality/impracticality/stupidity of his answer, what concerned me was that he clearly thought it was reasonable and sensible. He was in a minority of one !

Are they so naive that they cannot spot a clued-up guy like you from a numpty?

Why not?

Most of us when we first embark on motor-homing assume if seat belts are for 6 , sleeping arrangements are for 6 it’s Ok

Only later do we learn that payloads do not equal seats and beds

It’s a learning curve

Our van has seatbelts for 5 , beds for three, unless it’s a a couple of small kids that could sleep between us in the huge double bed

Payloads we never even heard of it in the early days

Which is why our three bedded van takes only two and has been upgraded to 385

It’s all about payloads

Where did he answer?

I only see a question?

Has his answer been deleted?

we all were different in our early days ofMHoming

I doubt he will come back on here now

I’m surprised at you Ploddy

Dont assume the OP has six passengers. I Wanted a six berth but there are only two of us. Mainly for the space, extra storage and lounging areas. Actually my van would suit the OP. Plenty of Payload and a rear lounge but I have to find a replacement first. Its also 1996 but is famous and legendary! Here you go Camper John! Hank the Tank Swift Kontiki 640
